Key Development Roles in Bangladesh
Jan 29 2013
Mott MacDonald (UK) has been appointed by the Government of Bangladesh to support three development projects aimed at reducing poverty and increasing incomes in the country. All are financed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
The consultancy is providing design and supervision services for SRIIP which will foster growth, capacity development and gender equality in three regions and 21 districts of north west and south west Bangladesh. The project aims to enhance the rural population’s contact with social services such as health and education, while widening access to markets and livelihood activities which will increase earnings for the rural poor. Innovative pilot projects include introducing toll roads, road safety improvement and small scale water and off grid electricity supplies in remote growth centres.
Mott MacDonald is also providing technical and management consultancy services to CHTRDPII which will strengthen institutional capacity, link remote communities to main roads, improve irrigation and water resources and offer economic opportunities through agribusiness support in three districts – Banderban, Khagrachari and Rangamati – all in the south east of the country.
Additionally, the company is carrying out due diligence for the ADB for a proposed water treatment plant in Khilkhet, Dhaka. The study will explore the feasibility of a public-private partnership (PPP) and possible alternatives which will improve the service delivery of water supply in the area.
Hero Heering, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “These projects will make a huge difference to the rural people of Bangladesh. Mott MacDonald has almost 60 years of experience working on development projects in the country, contributing to rural and water resources development, agriculture, environmental protection and management, climate change projects and capacity building.”
